A new nurse listened while Dr. Bryce was yelling, "Typhoid! Tetanus! Measles!" The new nurse asked another nurse, "Why is he doing that?" The other nurse replied, "Oh, he just likes to act like it was him who calls the shots around here."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Seventh Day Adventist Church of Reform pastor Wikler Moran-Mora in Hillsborough, Florida Pastor faked kidnapping to cheat on his wife A Hillsborough County pastor is in legal hot water after faking his own kidnapping so that he could spend more time with his girlfriend. According to Hillsborough Sheriff’s deputies, Seventh Day Adventist Church of Reform pastor Wikler Moran-Mora sent his wife a text message saying that he had been kidnapped, but that she should not panic. He later sent several more texts where he claimed that he was negotiating his release, which was when she called the police. More than a dozen Hillsborough deputies were involved in the search for the pastor, who was eventually located by tracing his cell phone. When deputies found him, Moran-Mora allegedly admitted that he had concocted the kidnapping story to spend time with the woman who he was in, when he was found.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: Govt Internet control Dear Webby I read a lot lately about a new law that will let Obama shut down the Internet if people want to send him back to Kenya or Costa Rica or wherever. Is there any truth to that, or i it just tea-bagger propaganda? Mark Dear Mark First of all, it is not a law YET. It is a draft by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat. As it stands now, it is a dogooderish sounding copy of the law that Iran used to gag the opposition after their election, and to prevent them from gaining any momentum or getting organized. While that is to be expected from Marxists, it is not a law yet. The draft might be changed and/or delayed until after the next election. Also consider that most ISPs and their staff wobble between acting as if they make the rules for God, and being dumber than dirt. And they are quite good at that! Just the thought of Obama arguing with Mujibar bin Dumdum in Bangalore, India brings a smile to my face. So, even if a gag order or shut-down is ordered, I would not expect instant or complete compliance. Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc. definitely don't plan on losing any revenue, just because of some revolution. The law would give Obama the might to do all kinds of silly things, "in coordination with relevant industry sectors". Right. That sounds like herding cats. Since the gag law is just a draft so far, I would not lose any sleep over it. Have FUN! DearWebby
Nancy came into her doctor's office and confessed to an embarrassing problem. "I fart all the time, Doctor Johnson, but they're soundless, and they have no Odor. In fact, since I've been here, I've farted no less than twenty times. What can I do?" "Here's a prescription, Nancy. Take these pills three times a day for seven days and come back and see me in a week." Next week an upset Nancy marched into Dr.Johnson's office. "Doctor, I don't know what was in those pills, but the problem is worse! I'm farting just as much, but now they smell terrible! What do you have to say for yourself?" "Calm down, Nancy," said the doctor soothingly. "Now that we've fixed your sinuses, we'll work on your hearing!!"

After church, Johnny tells his parents he has to go and talk to the minister right away. They agree and the pastor greets the family. "I heard you say today that our bodies came from the dust." "That's right, Johnny, I did." "And I heard you say that when we die, our bodies go back to dust." "Yes, I'm glad you were listening. Why do you ask?" "Well you better come over to our house right away and look under my bed 'cause there's someone either comin' or goin'!"
